SO, HOW DOES THIS

ALL HAPPEN?

Johnson Solutions works on real issues for a wide variety of companies, so we

understand the very real pressures you face. That’s why we’re as committed to

and serious about your project as you are. When you partner with us, you’ll receive a

project-specific timeline that enumerates milestones, assigns dates for progress

reports, and establishes the parameters for completion. While each timeline is

unique, they generally proceed as follows.

Commitment –

From your first interaction with us, you’ll sense our dedication to your needs. We

work with you to develop and finalize a project charter and written agreement; once that happens, your team is hand-picked by our staff to ensure that their expertise matches your needs.

Kick-off –

This is the date you begin the project with your Johnson Solutions team, usually with an in-person meeting or video conference. Your team learns about your goals, the scope of your project, and any relevant challenges.

Engagement –

Most projects last four or five months. During this time, your team conducts research and surveys, analyzes data, reviews findings, and consults with their faculty advisors. Regularly scheduled meetings keep you informed and up to date.

Presentation –

Months of work culminate with the team’s final presentation. You will learn about their

analysis, findings, and recommendations in a video conference or in-person meeting.

“ Sponsoring a Johnson Solutions project is a win-win situation

allowing students an opportunity to address real-world business

problems and infusing innovation into our renewable energy

business.”

WE KEEP SOME

VERY GOOD COMPANY.

Take a look at some of the companies that have benefitted from Johnson Solutions

consulting teams. We’d be proud to add your business to this list.

“ Corning’s experience with Johnson students was well worth the

investment. The students provided a creative solution to the original

question as well as a framework that will allow us to keep our

business case up to date.”

Phillip Bell, MBA ’07,

“ The backbone of our project was in market research and then analyzing our

findings to provide a valuable customer segmentation study to our client. It

was a great way to learn how to apply these disciplines in a real-world situation.

Entering my summer internship at P&G, I felt very well prepared, particularly in

presenting, strategic thinking, and applying general marketing acumen.”

Mike DeCoste, MBA ’12

WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES WHO THINK

WE DO A GREAT JOB.

The companies that work with Johnson Solutions teams — and the students on

those teams — are glad to share their thoughts about their experiences.

“ The World Kitchen team found the output very valuable

— not only did Johnson students provide a fresh take

on a current business challenge, the student team’s

output included consumer segmentation and concepts

we will apply for our new product introduction.”

Lee W. Muir, Chief Marketing Officer, World Kitchen
